CadQuery 2.0 Documentation

CadQuery is an intuitive, easy-to-use Python library for building parametric 3D CAD models. It has several goals:

  • Build models with scripts that are as close as possible to how you’d describe the object to a human, using a standard, already established programming language

  • Create parametric models that can be very easily customized by end users

  • Output high quality CAD formats like STEP and AMF in addition to traditional STL

  • Provide a non-proprietary, plain text model format that can be edited and executed with only a web browser

This Getting Started Video will show you what CadQuery can do. Please note that the video has not been updated for CadQuery 2.0 and still shows CadQuery use within FreeCAD.
